The heat is on, and I’m picking my Russian pickling cucumbers every day now. Tonight, I had enough to make a batch of quick pickles. Quick pickles are called “quick” because they don’t get a hot water canning bath, and that means the pickles turn out extra crispy. However, they must be kept in the refrigerator because they don’t have a long shelf life (less than 30 days). Trust me, though – they won’t last that long! See recipe!
